CLF 2022 Auction: Haversack by Sarah Miller

 


Whether you’re a shooter, hunter, or collector, a sturdy bag to match your muzzleloader is a necessity. This year’s CLF Live Fundraising Auction will offer a unique and well-made bag by Pennsylvania artist Sarah Miller. 


Miller’s ideally-sized haversack or “gathering bag” measures approximately 13” x 14”. Made from vegetable tanned cowhide and heavy pillow ticking, this robust and eye-catching bag will easily stand up to the rigors of the field or the range. Sporting hand-sewn leather and fitted with brass buttons, the haversack also features two large reinforced pockets in the bag’s interior. The leather is treated with the artist’s mixture of bear grease and beeswax. 


This haversack is the most popular design offered by Miller, who’s work is collected across the country and was used by the prop department of the 2015 motion picture epic The Revenant. This donation, Miller points out, is a way to support an organization that’s been central to her growth as an artist. The annual show, she says, “Is great place to meet great artists and see all the awesome work they do. I have made some very good friends and mentors through the CLA.”
